Dear friends around the world,

The advice below was recently given by the Protector Dorje Shugden during the Lunar New Year of 2018. This year, the Tibetan New Year (Losar) and the Chinese New Year fell on the same day, February 16. On that same day, the Protector Dorje Shugden kindly gave the following advice via His Eminence the 7th Panglung Kuten in trance.

This is not the first time Dorje Shugden has given advice. Over the years, I have consulted him numerous times and every single time, Dorje Shugden answers patiently, with compassion and always, always with the motivation to benefit others, as is befitting a fully enlightened being. As you can see clearly below, all the advice he gives is none other than the perfect Dharma. Of course this is not surprising for those of us who know about Dorje Shugden’s background; he, who is none other than Manjushri, was also an eminent scholar, accomplished practitioner and tantric master in many of his previous lives prior to arising as Dorje Shugden.

I have included for you below the live audio recording of the session. His advice is being shared here as it is applicable not only to practitioners of Dorje Shugden but also to everyone who wishes to advance in their spiritual practice. Please listen to it and not only keep it in your mind, but go all the way to practise it. This is Dharma advice coming from a Buddha himself. When we have the merits to receive advice from an enlightened being such as Dorje Shugden, the advice will only result in great benefit for ourselves and those around us.

Tsem Rinpoche

 

致世界各地的朋友:

以下为多杰雄登于2018年农历新年的开示。今年的农历新年和藏历新年恰好落在同一天,也就是阳历2月16日,而多杰雄登护法就在新年的第一天透过第七任庞龙神谕给予开示。

这已经不是多杰雄登第一次给予开示。在过去的数年里,我曾多次向多杰雄登请示,而多杰雄登每一次都慈悲地耐心回答,而且每一次都是以利益他人为出发点,这符合多杰雄登已证悟的境界。

由于多杰雄登已经证悟为佛,所以祂给予的一切开示都是正法——下面内容可清楚说明这一点。对于我们这些已经熟悉多杰雄登背景的人来说,多杰雄登与文殊菩萨无二无别,在祂还未化现为多杰雄登的很多次转世中,祂也是杰出学者,得道修行者和密续大师。

当天的录音也附在文稿的下方供大家做参考。因为多杰雄登的开示并不限于其法门的修行者,而且适合任何想要在修行路上有进步的人们,所以在这里跟大家分享。请仔细聆听,我们不止需要铭记在心,也应该全力以赴地去实践,修行。这是来自佛陀本身的佛法开示。当我们有足够功德得到来自像多杰雄登一样已经证悟者的开示时,它将为我们和身边的人带来莫大利益。

Dorje Shugden’s advice during Lunar New Year 2018

Today, the Chinese New Year and Tibetan New Year fall on the same day, I wish everyone Tashi Delek (may all be auspicious).

We must not underestimate even the slightest good deeds, and make our best effort to do so. Do not think that “What is the use of a small good deed?”, and think that small deeds do not have benefits. Doing virtuous deeds starts from putting effort in even the smallest actions, while committing non-virtuous deeds must be eradicated from even the smallest actions.

“Real Dharma arises from the mind and transforming your mind should be the preliminary practice.” Dharma practice is based on faith as the motivation, leading to us having a pure mind.

Starting from a good motivation, putting in your best effort, not harbouring any non-virtuous thoughts and having a pure mind to conduct any virtuous actions will bring a tremendous amount of benefits.

We usually talk about “Renunciation, Bodhicitta, Realisation of Emptiness”, saying it is easy; however, we need to make effort to develop renunciation, to have a compassionate heart towards others, to work hard to transform our stubborn and hard mind for it to become gentle and kind.

To really practise Dharma, to do many recitation, prostrations, circumambulations, these are good, but the real Dharma practice is to practise by abandoning the Eight Worldly Concerns. As the saying goes, “Abandon the Eight Worldly Concerns, not to waste the Opportune Conditions”. Just like how the past sages have practised, abandoning the Eight Worldly Concerns in order to attain the exalted stage of enlightenment.

“Worldly people”, all commoners are worldly people, normally referred to as lay people; for these worldly people, it is very difficult to abandon the Eight Worldly Concerns, but they must do their best, even if it is doing one virtuous action, it must be done with a pure motivation.

Dharma practice is not something for the ordained Sangha that lay people cannot practise. If we practise what we know and do our best, there will definitely be progress.

“All phenomena by nature do not exist”.[1] “All phenomena are merely imputed labels”.[2] Although emptiness is difficult to understand, “Even those who still have their doubts, will tear existence to tatters.”[3] (Practising emptiness) will bring about a great amount of merit.

If we pretend to do virtuous deeds, but we harbour non-virtuous thoughts, with intention to harm others, there will be no benefit if we do our practice. If we do our practice based on the altruistic motivation of benefiting others, then our practice will bring us benefits.

”We are our own refuge, we are our own enemy”. We are our own refuge, we cannot rely on others to prevent us from falling to the lower realms; there are also no other external enemies.

We must tame our mind, keep a kind motivation and intention, this will be beneficial to ourselves – beneficial both for this life, as well as beneficial for future lives, and not waste our current and future lives.

Being malicious to others, harming others and hurting their lives, the fruits of the action (karma) will eventually ripened on ourselves. “We are our own enemy”, only we ourselves are our enemies, the one who can make us fall to the lower realm is ourselves.

“We are our own refuge”, we are own refuge means we have to do it ourselves, we make our best effort to do virtuous deeds, just like a drop of water that will eventually become an ocean.

Have a virtuous motivation; when we fall sick, or when we encounter obstacles, do not blame others. It does not help to say that it is others harming us or it is what others did to us, those are of no benefit.

We must try our best to make our mind grow day by day, and become kinder each day, then it will be beneficial.

When we are sick, we have to seek treatment on time, do what is necessary to take care of our body. If we have a bad diet and this causes us to be sick, this is our own fault, not what others did to us. Doing pujas are just methods to temporarily remove obstacles. If we act as we like, and just do pujas when matters arise, it will be difficult to solve our problems.

For the negative karma and negative deeds accumulated in the past, we must do confession very well. We can recite the 100-Syllable Mantra, Chanting Buddha’s Name, and recite the 35 Confessional Buddhas to confess.

Chenrezig (Avalokiteshvara) is the yidam of compassion. In order to generate the Bodhi mind, we have to supplicate or pray to Chenrezig and recite his mantra.

Supreme Manjushri is the deity of wisdom, so we should supplicate or pray to Manjushri to increase our wisdom.

Supplicate or pray to the Lord of Secrets Vajrapani, recite his mantra, then it will have the power to eliminate the supernatural obstacles.

Pray to Tara for everything from business success, the safety and happiness of our family, it will be beneficial. As stated in the praise: “Desiring children you will gain offsprings; seek wealth and you will be granted riches; whatever you desire you will obtain”. Whether or not you can achieve success, it all depends on your mind.

In short, based on Renunciation, Bodhicitta, and the Right View of Emptiness, dedicating all virtuous acts towards enlightenment, this will cause our virtuous deeds to never cease.

As for relying on a spiritual guide, just as it states in the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (Lamrim Chenmo), everyone here should have some understanding about it, and one must practise according to what was stated in the Lamrim Chenmo. “The foundation for every realisation is to properly rely on one’s kind Guru”, from relying on a spiritual guide, practising the stages of the path, thereby ultimately attaining the exalted stage of enlightenment.

Dedicate all virtuous deeds to achieving enlightenment with the motivation, “May I be the cause for all sentient beings to be free of suffering”. If you have such a mindset, this will be beneficial.

In the same way, always dedicate towards the propagation of Buddhadharma, especially the sacred doctrine of Manjunatha Tsongkhapa to spread and to remain long. Think that “May it be so” and with this motivation, dedicate the virtuous deeds towards enlightenment.

If you do so, it will benefit everyone as a whole, it will also benefit you.

    As we are heading to the end of 2019, it is good to reflect how much have we done and achieve. How much have we transform our mind? Enlightened being such as Dorje Shugden always advise us to practise dharma, follow our Guru’s advise and to help others so that everyone can be free from suffering. Everything that we do be it small or big, we need to remind ourselves to set good motivation and benefits others. Importantly, we have to apply the dharma.

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

    This is an important divination (‘mo’) text composed by Dorje Shugden himself. Dorje Shugden took trance of the Choyang Dulzin oracle lama, the senior oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery, and instantly on the spot composed this text within two hours.

    The divination text contains information on how to use dice to do divination for the future and is known to be highly accurate. When practitioners use this text, they will be in direct contact with Dorje Shugden to get answers to questions about the future. It is for those who have good samaya with Dorje Shugden and are free of the eight worldly dharmas to be of benefit to others in divining the future.

    Here are some interesting videos of oracles from the Himalayan region. These oracles take trance of local deities who aid their surrounding communities by healing people of their illnesses and solve their problems. In these videos you can see the deities take trance of their oracles and perform rituals to heal and even physically suck out illnesses from people’s bodies.

  6. Wei Theng on Apr 11, 2018 at 2:26 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing Dorje Shugden’s New Year advice that is full of wisdom and compassion and inlined with Lamrim.

    From setting up pure motivation and do the actions that will benefit others and avoid harm to others. “The real Dharma is not just recitation, prostrations, circumambulations, but the real Dharma practice is to practise by abandoning the Eight Worldly Concerns.” Very practical for all of us to follow and work on ourselves.

    Another point that stand out for me is to rely on our Guru to guide us in our spiritual path. Our guru is our root of enlightenment.

    Thank you Rinpoche and thank you Protector for advising us on what we need to focus on for our Dharma practice.

  7. wan wai meng on Mar 20, 2018 at 10:20 pm

    We are truly blessed to receive advice from Dorje Shugden a Buddha, directly from him. To live a good life and have a good year. Thank you Kechara and Rinpoche that we can get advice from Dorje Shugden, a supramundane protector whose time has time.

    I thank the great protector for giving us the dharma, and that we can achieve our goals, that we have set. Our minds are important to help us achieve those goals.

  8. Pastor Antoinette Kass on Mar 1, 2018 at 12:30 am

    We are very fortunate to receive pure Dharma teaching from Dorje Shugden via H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s webpage. We know what does help us to become happy and live a fruitful life. It is up to us to practice and improve day by day.
    Thank you very much for this precious advice for the New Year.

  9. Pastor Chia on Feb 28, 2018 at 8:29 am

    Enligtenment protector Dorje Shugden are so compassion to give New Year advice are fill with dharma teaching to encourage everyone must have good motivation and free for eight worldy concern to practice dharma. otherwise will create more negative karma for ourselve. Since all our action is all the negative karma is created by ourselve. We must more aware our motivation and practice good virture deed for us to collect merit. I thank Rinpoche has share this at the blog and many people listen Dorje Shugden advice benifit us individule dharma practice to get blessing from holy dharma protector.

  10. Pastor Albert on Feb 28, 2018 at 8:02 am

    All these advice given by Dorje Shugden is exactly the same as what Rinpoche has been teaching all these years, practice Dharma, practice for not only for our material needs, but most importantly practice for our spiritual growth.

    We are our own refuge, we are our own enemy, this is so true that everything is from ourselves, since young, we have been practicing that when things goes wrong, first thing to do first is to point the finger out, it is because of so and so, thats why things goes wrong, that caused my suffering, but everything is from us, when we think that all wrongs are done by ourselves, all good deeds are done by ourselves, then things will gets better, because we are taking ownership of our action and not pushing the responsibilities to others.

    Thank you the great Protector Dorje Shugden for this precious advice and thank you Rinpoche for the sharing, whatever Rinpoche taught us is always the same teaching from the Buddha that was passed down since 2500 years ago, it was never created by himself for his self gain, but it is all for the benefit of the students and everyone spiritually, thank you Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden for always so compassionate to guide us and never give up on anyone no matter how much harm we have created, now is the time we should act on it and not wait for the ‘right time’ to start, or else, the advice given will not help us on anyways.

  11. Carmen Koo on Feb 28, 2018 at 4:14 am

    Dorje Shugden’s advice is filled with wisdom, arising from compassion. There is nothing about material or worldly ‘success’, but the advice is only always guiding us to success of our mind, to tame our minds, for the ultimate purpose of achieving enlightenment.

    Dorje Shugden adviced to supplicate Chenrezig (Avalokiteshvara) to generate the Bodhi mind, to pray to Manjushri to increase our wisdom, and to Vajrapani to eliminate supernatural obstacles. In essence, that is supplicating the supreme sage Lama Tsongkhapa, who embodies all these qualities.

    To develop virtuous thoughts brings much benefit and merit. When we do that daily, it becomes easier and easier to do so.

    Rinpoche had recently said to Never let go of the Dharma, to Never let go of the Guru and to Never let go of always wanting to benefit others – that is in essence, the advice of Dorje Shugden condensed extremely well by Rinpoche.

    Buddha taught the Dharma for us to practice and to realise the ultimate truth. The advice from Dorje Shugden is very apt for us. From this, you can see much virtue, wisdom and compassion from this enlightened protector, who is one with Manjushri,

  12. June Kang on Feb 28, 2018 at 2:21 am

    The real Dharma Protector – Dorje Shugden is always care about the practitioners’ spiritual grow and to offer protection to the spiritual seekers. Again, in this Chinese New Year he reminded us again of our spiritual grow. His message is consistent, not “big word” but very practical. Dorje Shugden never ask anything from us except asked us practice Dharma, transform our mind so that we can develop clarity of mind and wisdom to push our spiritual practice to another level. In our spiritual journey, we just need to generate a good motivation and have strong faith in Dorje Shugden and he will always help you.

  13. Tek Lee on Feb 28, 2018 at 1:20 am

    This is a very good advice from Dorje Shugden. It is suitable not only for us who practice Dharma, but for people who is not in Dharma too. I specially like this sentence, ”We are our own refuge, we are our own enemy”. Whether we want to do it or not, it depends on ourselves. It reminds me of what Rinpoche always told us – The greatest gift to our Guru is mind transformation. As a Dharma practitioner, we must always remind ourselves of the eight worldly concern, so that we can do it with the right motivation, and to aid in our mind transformation. Thank you Dorje Shugden. ??

  14. Justin on Feb 28, 2018 at 12:26 am

    Dorje Shugden is indeed an enlightened Dharma protector, for me it is because He has always been consistently advising us to renounce, abandon tje 8 worldly concerns and practice mind transformation. Dorje Shugden is very compassionate, always remind us of our spiritual path. Something simple to understand but yet powerful to understand. I also find His advice has always match what my Guru, Tsem Rinpoche’s advice which is brilliant.

  15. Vivian Ong on Feb 27, 2018 at 11:37 pm

    Thank you Dorje Shugden for the advice and reminder. If we can have mind transformation, it is the best refuge for ourselves. In on opinion, a virtuous deed be it small or big, we must not hope to get a praise as it involves the 8 worldly concerns. We must do virtuous deeds with a mind thinking of benefiting others until the very last breath of our lives.

  16. Andrea Lai on Feb 27, 2018 at 11:18 pm

    It really awesome and wonderful to received advice from Protector Dorje Shugden especially on special occasion like Lunar Chinese New Year and Tibetan New Year too. Having a good and correct motivation is a good start in a new year for all people will boost them to do better things to help and benefit others throughout the whole year. Personally, I think mind transformation is the best reward to the protector, our Guru and to self.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden kind advices and May Dharma flourished to ten directions. ?

  17. pammie yap on Feb 27, 2018 at 9:56 pm

    Dorje Shugden is indeed a Dharma protector, an emanation of Manjushri for He always give advice that will only benefit and remind us of our spiritual path. Every time He would give teachings through an oracle and ask nothing in return. Just like here https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-farm-of-your-mind.html and here https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/700-meet-a-buddha.html
    Although small steps may not make much difference but it doesn’t mean it will in the long run. Just like how we may not be able to transform overnight but that doesn’t mean that we can’t so long as we always make the correct motivation and effort to transform.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden for such meaningful advice for a new year.

  18. Datuk May on Feb 27, 2018 at 7:14 pm

    This is such an encouraging advice from King Protector Dorje Shugden for us during the auspicious Luna Chinese New Year and Tibetan Losar.

    What impacted me the most is that we need to step by step cultivate our mind and do virtuous deeds with kind and compassionate motivation. And that no act is “small” as long as we put in the best efforts we know how.

    We must always be responsible to our spiritual path and not blame others for what happens to us whether good or bad. It is karma that we reap what we sow. Therefore it is imperative for us to be always mindful of our thoughts, deeds and conduct.

    As always taught by H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, think and act in benefit to others.

  19. Pastor Han Nee on Feb 22, 2018 at 5:58 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this powerful Chinese New Year Day advice from Dorje Shugden. It is a teaching of The Lamrim, with its Three Principal Paths , given to us in “Bite Sizes”. From the emphasis on real Dharma practice and the benefits of garnering merits through virtuous actions , no matter how small they may be, to the importance of pure motivation and the avoidance of negative actions that harm others(as they will come to us), to the need for purification practices, the necessity of being kind and selfless and seeking to benefit others, we are shown how it is that we are our own refuge and our own enemy.Our happiness or our misery is in our hands.

  20. Lum Kok Luen on Feb 22, 2018 at 5:35 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden for this compassionate advise to all of us in Dharma. It is really heart warming, full of love, compassion, care and unending kindness expressed in the message.

    May I all be guided and attain higher stages of Dharma through following this advise.

    Humbly yours
    Lum Kok Luen

  21. Sangay Wangmo on Feb 22, 2018 at 7:32 am

    ?Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful advice, loser Tashi Delek ?.

  22. so kin hoe (KISG) on Feb 21, 2018 at 8:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for connecting us with Dorje Shugden’s blessing and protection through the Dharma teachings given by Dorje Shugden on the auspicious Tibetan New Year and Chinese New Year. Upon reading through the Dharma teachings and advices given directly from Dorje Shugden, I personally reminded myself to become more mindful with my body, speech and mind for not to ignore any opportunity to perform small good deeds daily, even to the level of saving the ants from being stepped on without notice while walking on the floor. According to my understanding, we should build a strong foundation of learning and understanding the Dharma starting from simple and small good deeds so that we can create the opportunities to achieve higher level of Dharma practice along our spiritual path until we can train and tame our minds instead of letting our minds to wander around with delusions and desires.

    The advices given by Dorje Shugden is not complicated and directly straight to the points where we should abandon all The Eight Worldly Concerns and do not waste our precious human’s life with worldly activities but to engage, learn, practice and share the Dharma in order to safe guard our next good rebirth until we are able to be freed from karmic bound and samsara, ultimately to achieve enlightenment through our effort and pure motivations to benefit others. Dorje Shugden even encourages us to become kinder day by day and enhance our scope and level of compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, and all the good qualities through our mind transformation. No one can save us from suffering and pain except ourselves because we own our current karma as we have accumulated them from our many past lives.

    Thank you once again to Rinpoche for Your compassion and kindness to share the advices given by Dorje Shugden and thank you Dorje Shugden for giving us the blessing and protection through the Dharma teachings and valuable advices. May Rinpoche live long with stable health to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma and may the ban of Dorje Shugden will be lifted soonest possible for the benefit of all sentient beings. May the Dharma continue to reach to every corner of the world until samsara ends.

    Humbly with folded hands,

    This year. the Tibetan New Year (Losar) and the Chinese New Year coincidentally fell on the same date, i.e. February 16, 2018! Following said advice, as per given via His Eminence, the 7th Panglung Kuten in Trance, it was informed that Dorje Shugden”s cataleptic predictions have been sought and obtained numerous times in the past years, and always have been given with much patience, compassion coupled with some perfect Dharma teachings together with some careful advice. As Rinpoche has informed that this is not surprising for ‘one’ whose background is none other than our Buddha of ‘Wisdom’ Manjushri, prior to arising as Dorje Shugden. As indicated in Dorje Shugden’s catalepsy, he had cautioned that, ” The foundation for every realization is to rely on one’s kind guru and also on the spiritual guiding, where one must practice according to what are taught, especially on “The stages of the path, thereby ultimately attaining the exalted stage of enlightenment! With sincere good motivation, one must always dedicate one’s virtuous deeds towards the benefits of all concern! The the results of the advice will thus strive to benefit all concerned including oneself too! Om Mani Padme Hum.

  24. Samfoonheei on Feb 21, 2018 at 12:25 pm

    Wow …having the Chinese New Year and the Tibetan New Year same day . That’s wonderful, auspicious and rare whereby everyone will be enjoying at the same time. Dorje Shugden’s precious advice during Lunar New Year 2018 is indeed timely. However small or big deeds is still very virtuous as long as we put in our best with a good motivation and a pure mind. All of us are fortunate to have met Rinpoche through kechara and have learned ,practiced Dharma. Without Rinpoche there is no Dharma…….we are indeed grateful . I am glad to have made the right choice to choose what i want to learn and practice .Having this precious advice from our powerful Protector Dorje Shugden is a blessing. May our compassionate Guru stays healthy and live long to continue turning the Dharma wheel to benefits all the sentient beings. May more and more people benefits from this precious advice and Dorje Shugden protections.
    Thank you Dorje Shugden and Rinpoche for this powerful advice which I will bear in mind and had it bookmarked .

  25. graceleong on Feb 20, 2018 at 9:32 pm

    Receiving and reading this precious teaching from Dorje Shugden is truly heartwarming. Thank you to the most compassionate Protector Dorje Shugden and thank you Rinpoche for sharing it with us.
    The path of Mind Transformation is so tough and strenuous, a struggle to deal with all the negativities so deeply ingrained. Teachings as that above from the Great Sages are full of wisdom and compassion – can just feel it through all those skillful words used. How apt for it to be shared now as we approach the challenges of the new year ahead.
    May many benefit from the wise words and assist beings in reducing their sufferings and create the causes for Enlightment.
    With folded hands.

    Happy Chinese New Year To All.

    We are really blessed to be able to receive such teaching/ advise from the buddha himself. Actually what is said, is really what Our Guru has been doing. Always doing good deeds and helping people along the way without wanting anything back.

    I must say it is not easy as lay people for we always want any actions that we have done to be reciprocate back. For me, the advise is timely as it Helps to remind me that even the slightest good deeds are not wasted and that i should remember and continue doing, rather than not doing anything at all.

    I like the way it was explained on how our body will react by what we eat, representing our Kharma. Its a good reminder. Imagine that u dont feel the importantance of a 30mins exercise and eating healthy. What will happen to u? Never belittle the little effort put in for good deeds.

    Thank U Rinpoche for giving us the opportunity to read and understand the holy advise by Dorje Shugden.

    Out of compassion, Buddha Manjushri emanate in the form of Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden to help us swiftly.

    Now, with the blessings of our precious guru, we are so fortunate to receive these precious advice from Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden reminded us that dharma practice is based on our faith and pure motivation. When we do for any virtuous actions with the pure motivation and out of the Eight Worldly Concerns, it definitely will bring much beneficial not only ourselves but also many others. We should start to practice by letting go our small “self” and slowly let go the big “self”. Eventually we are able to do more that benefit others instead of only ourselves.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing Lord Shudgen’s message to all. It’s a timely reminder at the beginning of the year if we want to advance in our spiritual practice. Thank you for always sharing such advice as a caring parent would to their child. May I and many others always be able to receive the Dharma from my Guru, H.E Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, in this and future lives.

  30. Lin Mun on Feb 19, 2018 at 9:49 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Lord Dorje Shugden for sharing his precious advises to us during this New Year. It is a good reminder for us to practise dharma and transform our mind. If our mind don’t transform we will forever doing the wrong actions and not able to change our path. Practising Guru Devotion is also very important as “The foundation for every realisation is to properly rely on one’s kind Guru”.

    May I have the opportunity to always learn dharma from my kind Guru, Tsem Rinpoche in every life time.

  31. Irene Lim on Feb 19, 2018 at 9:11 pm

    Fortune smiles on us when our great Protector Lord Dorje Shugden, bestow on us his precious advice on the first day Chinese/Tibetan New Year. Time for contemplation and practice to gain benefit from his divine advice. With great appreciation to Guru and Protector. May limitless beings come under your care and achieve the ultimate goal.

  32. Julia on Feb 19, 2018 at 9:45 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the video of Lord Dorje Shugden took trance to give advice for this auspicious day which CNY and Losar happened to be at the same day and kindly transcript everything for us to read and understand the content.

    Thank you Lord Dorje Shugden for Your precious advice. Every words you said filed with compassion and wisdom like the father talking to his beloved only child. Your words straight to the point. We have so much problems but all self created, as you know our minds and what we suffered the most so well. Your advise served well at this moment when we all having our reunion time with family and friends where this is the best time to contemplate our minds and be honest to ourselves. Keeping Your advice in our hearts without practicing is with zero benefit. We must always put Dharma in our daily life and reminded ourslwves with the advice You have given.

    Im grateful to have our beloved Guru whom has been working very hard giving us endless love, dharma and advice all the time, manifested many situations for us to learn to transform our mind to be better, to save us from 3 lower realms. Without Guru and Dorje Shugden, our lives would have been suffered much much more with our huge ego, anger and ignorance.

    May I pray and dedicate my merits to my Guru has long life and continue to turn the wheel of dharma and may my wisdom and compassion incense everyday. May I never be parted from my beloved Guru and Lord Dorje Shugden in all my lives.

    With gratitude and love,
    Julia ??

    Thank you, H.E Tsem Rinpoche & Great Dharma Protector.

    May everyone of us able to get insight, see the truth of life , benefit of doing good deeds and practise Dharma will full force.

    Nothing changes but everything changes. – Tsem Rinpoche

  34. nicholas on Feb 18, 2018 at 10:24 pm

    Thank you very much Lord Shugden for the kind advice during this festive event. Indeed Dorje Shudgen is an enlightened being that would give dharma sharing to make us transform our mind solely to benefit us.

    It’s definitely not easy to transform our mind overnight but we can set a good motivation and put effort to make changes in a smallest action and be consistent with it.

    Thank you Rinpoche for introducing Dorje Shudgen to me for helping me to focus in my dharma practice. Due to the degenerate time and negative karma that accumulated protector practice is important to help me and as well as others. I’m grateful to Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden.

    May I continue my spiritual journey life after life by meeting Rinpoche as my Guru guiding me to the enlighten path.

  35. Bradley Kassian on Feb 18, 2018 at 4:45 pm

    Thank you, Supreme Dharmapala for the wonderful advice this Losar and Chinese New Year. Every word of your compassionate advice is pure Dharma. Please continue to help us in the struggle to achieve Buddhahood. May we continue to be blessed by your presence, receive your advice, and assistance in this life, and future lives. May you always guide us to a Guru like H.E. Tsem Rinpoche . May we all put your advice into practice this very moment.

    With Folded Hands:

  36. Datuk May on Feb 18, 2018 at 4:10 pm

    Dear King of Protectors,

    Thank you for very much for the kind and compassionate advice for Losar and the Chinese New Year. Reading Your advice brings tears to my eyes as to how very compassionate and encouraging You are to us lay people in samsara and how You are always with us to guide and teach each step of our spiritual path.

    Thank you for having paved my way to my Root Guru, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and it is through Him that I have gained so much knowledge of Your Lineage. May I, life after life have the merits to be with Rinpoche.

    With folded hands:
    Datuk May

  37. Cc on Feb 18, 2018 at 2:35 pm

    ??? Tashi delek & Happy CNY
    Is great to hear that and we are indeed fortunate and greatful.

    May the dharma florish and may all sentient beings benefit from it.

    Thank you Rinpoche.???

  38. Pastor Henry Ooi on Feb 18, 2018 at 1:53 pm

    Thank you very much, Lord Shugden, for always being here with us in samsara. For always showing true compassion and kindness, for always thinking and giving advice to benefit others, for always being ready to assist those in need. Your enlightened advice, like in the past and in the future, is always about Dharma and Dharma practice as taught by the Enlightened One. We, especially in Kechara, have greatly benefited, are benefiting, and will benefit from Your compassionate guidance. We are indeed very fortunate to have met You, through the true compassion of Rinpoche, for without Rinpoche, we would not have met You in this life. I make this aspirational prayer that I will meet Rinpoche again and again, life after life, and to be connected to You again, Lord Shugden. For without the Dharma, through the wisdom, compassion and skilful means taught by Rinpoche; and without You, it would be nearly impossible for me to complete my spiritual journey, paddling across the oceans of suffering.

    Thank You, Rinpoche, for this precious opportunity.

    ???
    Henry

    Chengdu is a sub-provincial city which serves as the capital of the Chinese province of Sichuan. The city is also home to the famous Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, a conservation center where visitors can view endangered giant pandas in a natural habitat. Been an ancient city with a history of more than 3,100 years, it offer many tourist attraction. Many of the ancient sites around Chengdu reflect the influence of Buddhism, as well as the agricultural history of the region. Thousands of tourists both locally and internationally will flock to this city the beauty of it. It seem Chengdu is one of the most leisurely cities in the world. Well , Chengdu is famous for its spicy hot pot and many other mouth tingling dishes. This is because of the world famous Sichuan peppercorn that is grown in the region. Not only that the Giant statues of the Buddha one in Leshan, show the enduring presence of Buddhism on the area.
    Reading this post help a lot for those first timers visitors like me. I am glad my friends and me made it there to see for ourselves. I wish i could revisit this beautiful and exciting Chengdu again in future. Loved seeing those ancient architecture of those temples and of the city.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful post with details.

    Many monasteries have their own Dharma Protectors to safeguard the organisation and its interests. Setrap is one of them , they will propitiate their Dharma protectors every month to request for protection, blessings, and assistance for the growth of the Dharma and the well-being of the sangha. Each and every monasteries have their own. Interesting read of this article all about the close historical relationship between Dorje Shugden and Setrap.
    Setrap is emanation of the wrathful emanation of Buddha Amitabha, while Dorje Shugden is emanation of Manjushri. Setrap is an ancient Dharma Protector from the holy land of Bodhgaya in India. Sworn to protect the teachings and the practice was introduced to Tibet, and has since flourished. Many great Lamas and Geshes are known to have practised both Setrap, as Gaden Shartse’s Dharma protector, and also Dorje Shugden. They cannot be wrong definitely where Dorje Shugden is not an evil as claimed by the CTA. They knew the practice is very beneficial . has been the Dharma Protector of Gaden Shartse Monastery for the past 600 years. Dalai Lama visited the Dharma protector Setrap’s chapel in Gaden Shartse Monastery, South India. Dalai Lama even consecrated the chapel with prayers and sees Setrap as an enlightened being. Dalai Lama also endorsed Setrap and his practice as a beneficial one where he did affirmed the practice of Dorje Shugden through such close association. Interesting read may more people read this article to have a clearer understanding.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Looking at those pictures and videos tell a thousand words. What is underneath those lakes mentioned , cannot be taken too lightly. Well-known lake monsters such as
    Loch Ness , Champ, Ogopogo and so forth has been sighted in those lakes around the world. Stories of a sea monster lurking in the depths of lakes are actually centuries old. To believe or not its up to individual. The unexplored darkness of lakes serve as one of the gateways for these fascinations. Many had claimed witnessing those creatures but with no hard evidence. People love to fill in mysterious areas of nature with myths of monsters. Sightings of such lakes creatures is interesting to many. I do believe there are such sea creatures inhabiting in those lakes centuries ago. Some of those creature’s names indeed new to me. Interesting to know that they do exist after all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting article.

    Amazing ,truly beautiful 1000-armed Avalokitesvara. A special gift given by Joshua and family from Singapore to Rinpoche. I love looking at 1000-armed Avalokitesvara where ever I went seeing any images of it i will always stare at it hoping to get hold of it. Avalokiteśvara is one of the most famous bodhisattvas in Buddhism, who embodies the quality of compassion and having the ability to understand the suffering of others. Merely looking at this beautiful 1000-armed Avalokitesvara paints a thousand words.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Revisit this blog again as the miracles stories of Lama Tsongkhapa Statues truly interesting. We are fortunate to have met our Lama Tsem Rinpoche learning all the wonderful teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa. Its such a beneficial teachings and practicing it with so many amazing benefits for us all. Reading this post have me increased my knowledge. Looking at the rare foot print of Lama Tsongkapa which is a sign of his tantric achievements is indeed a blessing for us. The practice of Migtsema is amazing and powerful as it contains the meaning of all the Buddha’s 84,000 teachings.

    Since the monks are holding so many vows, serving them is an opportunity for HUGE merit. They are a source of inspiration for others who are seeking spiritual solace. We need to support them and creates the causes for the Dharma to remain , creating the causes for an abundance of spiritual and material wealth for ourselves as well. In Bangkok , its amazing having the opportunity to make offerings to the monks and nuns early in the morning. Giving to the monks and nuns is an incredible thing, we create unbelievable merit if we offer to the monks with the motivation of Bodhicitta. Looking at Angel makes offerings, reminds me of my trip to ChiangMai where I have an opportunity to give packed foods to monks early in the morning. Its truly wonderful indeed. If I have the opportunity again I will definitely love to offer foods to the monks.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Wow interesting one of the most fantastic escapes in history now comes in comic for everyone to know the truth. The true story of how HH the 14th Dalai Lama had made a daring and dangerous escape. Dalai Lama had secretly travelled to India back in 1959. The truth not many knew but with this comic , more people will understand better. Its in simple and yet easy diagrams where kids and adults would love it. The great Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden through the esteemed Panglung Oracle had helped Dalai Lama .
    Interesting comic book one must read it .

    Thailand is a Southeast Asian country known for tropical beaches, opulent royal palaces, ancient ruins and ornate temples displaying figures of Buddha. Home to an exorbitantly priced delicacy as well. There are thousands of Buddhist temples in Thailand. Everywhere and corners we could see Buddhist temples . Wat Pho or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, it’s a must-see for any one visiting Thailand first-time . It is the one of the most important Buddhist temples in Thailand, which is 1,800 years old, and is the oldest in the world. Been the third largest, longest and most beautiful reclining Buddha image in Thailand . There are 108 pearl carvings of auspicious images on the Buddha’s soles, in the Chinese-Thai style. Visited Bangkok many years ago but couldn’t recall if I had visited this temple. Wish to revisit again in future to see again the beauty of those temples at Bangkok. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post with video and beautiful pictures.

    High in the mountains of Sichuan province, hidden from the outside world by its geographical remoteness is the largest nunnery in the world. With an estimated 20,000 nuns, monks and lay practitioners living in the austere surroundings of the Yarchen Gar monastery. The Yarchen Gar monastery above 4000m sea level considered to be the largest concentration of monastics in the world dedicated to the preservation of Tibetan Buddhist culture after the Cultural Revolution. Looking at those pictures tells us all, it’s a huge sea of Burgundy robes, one wouldn’t expect anything on this scale to exist or survive. With determination and will power they could live and do their meditation . Living in such an rudimentary conditions, they are devoted to following the faith and entering a life of sacrament.

    When we die our money, fame, and honours will be meaningless. We own nothing in this world. Everything we think we own is in reality only being loaned to us until we die. Everything surrounding us is only temporary. And on our deathbed at the moment of death, no one can save us. Anything can happen in life, anytime of the day , we have to live meaningfully while we still can by learning and practicing dharma before its too late. Do something useful for others in our life .
    Nothing is accomplished in one day…the bigger the project, the more the obstacles…but the obstacles you suffer is for others…so suffer it without suffering…Tsem Rinpoche

    Dana in the Buddhist tradition means giving freely without expecting anything in return. The act of giving is purely out of compassion. Giving is an essential Buddhist practice. It is about generosity, openness, and our capacity to embrace others with compassion and love. At dawn, all over Thailand, the local monks will travel from their temples to the markets and past shops and houses, where local people offer food alms in exchange for blessings. The monks will be walking barefoot and with great grace, that’s where we could offer them foods in packets or so. It was truly wonderful, learning from this post and able to give while I was there in Chiangmai,Thailand few years back.
    When we support the sangha , we support the Dharma. Buddhist monks depend on our support and help to continue their spiritual path to continue benefiting others and dharma to grow .Looking at those pictures tells more.
    Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing and with explanation for us to understand more of it.

    Really very inspiring story, God sent Hero back to India. He droped his job opportunity and gave many people possibilities to survive. I believe not everyone has the passion to contribute or an opportunity to serve others like Mr. Krishnan and KSK.

    There is definitely an unseen spirit world all around us. Even though we are not able to see it or spirits it does not mean they do not exist. Spirits are beings trapped in a non-physical form in the lower realms.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers team for sharing this interesting and powerful practice of Trakze . Well it’s a very powerful practice for anyone been disturbed by spirits ,unseen beings and obstacles where someone had put a spell on them in their health and business matters. Known as black magic by some . Trakze’s practice and can be done daily for any of us who needs protection even if we are not afflicted by black magic and spirits. Interesting read with all the explanations,of how the practice should be done for us .
    Thanks again with folded hands.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

    3 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s

Amongst all pujas, the fire puja is considered the king of all Pujas. It is the most powerful of all pujas within Tibetan Buddhism and its purpose is basically to remove all obstacles and its stains to enlightenment.
